Using italics instead of underlines for titles on the web

On the web, underlined text is used almost exclusively for links. Book or other publication titles that are normally underlined in print materials are instead done in italics.

Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition (2010) says (8.166) that when quoted in text or listed in a bib­li­og­ra­phy, titles of books, jour­nals, plays, and other free­stand­ing works are ital­i­cized and cap­i­tal­ized head­line style. 

So... turn off the underline and use italics instead and you'll be more accessible!
